New York Car Accident Attorneys
HURT IN A CRASH? Let our Personal Injury Attorneys help.
Motor vehicle traffic crashes are the leading cause of injury related death for New York State residents.
This is a scary but eye-opening statistic. In 2014, more than 500,000 vehicles throughout New York State were involved in an accident. Over 1,000 people lost their lives as a result of injuries sustained in a car crash, and thousands more were hospitalized or visited the emergency room.
Syracuse sees a substantial number of wrecks in and around its suburbs and roadways. Central New Yorkers know that frequent snow, ice, and slush present additional risk during the winter months. The sad reality is that drivers, passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and bikers are being hurt and killed every day. The emotional and financial impact can be catastrophic for victims and their families.

Catalano Levels the Playing Field
Statistics are just statistics until you become one of them. What to do? Who do you to talk to? Who can you trust? The questions can be overwhelming. Let an experienced car accident attorney help.
The insurance company will have adjusters, investigators and lawyers working to make sure you get as little money as possible for your personal injury claim. Having an experienced auto accident lawyer on your side will level the playing field. Peter Catalano Injury Lawyers will help you deal with insurance companies, fill out paperwork, and prepare for a successful settlement that will help cover some or all of your injury-related costs.
What Should I Do After a Car Accident?
As soon as an accident occurs, time is of the essence. In many cases, there is only a brief period of time (the first 24-48 hours) to effectively gather evidence and witness statements. Depending on the circumstances, an investigator may need to examine the scene and an accident reconstructionist may be needed to determine the cause of the accident based on witness interviews and photographs of the scene.
If you’re injured in a car accident, your priority is to seek the appropriate medical attention, whether that requires an ambulance ride, trip to the emergency room, or appointment with your doctor. But having the right information can make or break your car accident injury claim. This is a great time to use your cell phone to take photos of important documents, damage to your vehicle, and photos of the accident scene.
Do I Have a Case?
We get this question a lot. Every accident is different with its own set of circumstances. The best thing to do is sit down with one of our attorneys so you can present the facts. An initial case evaluation is completely FREE with no strings attached. You’re not required to hire Peter Catalano Injury Lawyers.
